Passing the baton...

Magic marker? Slick batons? was that all about? Dropping it like it's hot?

It was hot, the chinese had radiated the US batons before hand, to result in epic failure.

Apparently the economic crisis has hit the team hard too. They couldn't afford the printed USA on their Jerseys like all the other teams.

Yeah, those are America's finest there...

Magic marker for the USA logo instead of something that looked actually well thought out, and let's just juggle the baton insted of passing it...

Of course, I say this, and at my peak, I would have completed 200 in about the time these athletes can complete the entire 4x100 relay.

And I would have probably dropped the baton twice without trying to have it to anyone... and have misspelled USA.

Reminds me of a sign in town here. Hand painted.

One side: Sale, Onins xx cents.
Other side: Sale, Onons xx cents.

Just missed it twice.
